PARP1 Is Overexpressed in Hematological Malignant Cell Lines: A Framework for Experimental Oncology.

Anticancer Res 2021 May;41(5):2397-2402

Pharmacogenetics Laboratory, Drug Research and Development Center (NPDM), Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Federal University of Ceará, Fortaleza, Brazil.

Background/aim: Experimental oncology commonly uses cells as oncological models, providing a framework for the testing of drugs, and investigation of cytotoxicity, mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. Investigations into poly-ADP-ribose polymerase 1 (PARP1) inhibition have become ever more relevant due to its approval as a therapeutic option for tumors with BRCA1/2 DNA repair-associated mutation and the seemingly high PARP expression levels in some tumor subtypes. In this study, we aimed to determine PARP1 gene expression of different hematological cancer-derived cell lineages and compare them to that of normal cell lines. Read More

Assessment of Mixed   Infection in Endemic Burkitt Lymphoma: A Case-Control Study in Malawi.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Apr 2;13(7). Epub 2021 Apr 2.

Infections and Immunoepidemiology Branch, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA.

Background: Endemic Burkitt lymphoma (eBL) is the most common childhood cancer in Africa and is linked to () malaria infection, one of the most common and deadly childhood infections in Africa; however, the role of genetic diversity is unclear. A potential role of genetic diversity in eBL has been suggested by a correlation of age-specific patterns of eBL with the complexity of infection in Ghana, Uganda, and Tanzania, as well as a finding of significantly higher genetic diversity, based on a sensitive molecular barcode assay, in eBL cases than matched controls in Malawi. We examined this hypothesis by measuring diversity in serine repeat antigen-5 (), an antigenic target of blood-stage immunity to malaria, among 200 eBL cases and 140 controls, all polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-positive, in Malawi.

B Cell Receptor-Responsive miR-141 Enhances Epstein-Barr Virus Lytic Cycle via FOXO3 Inhibition.

mSphere 2021 Apr 14;6(2). Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute, Oregon Health & Science University, Beaverton, Oregon, USA

Antigen recognition by the B cell receptor (BCR) is a physiological trigger for reactivation of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and can be recapitulated by cross-linking of surface immunoglobulins. Previously, we identified a subset of EBV microRNAs (miRNAs) that attenuate BCR signal transduction and subsequently dampen lytic reactivation in B cells. The roles of host miRNAs in the EBV lytic cycle are not completely understood. Read More

Zhongguo Shi Yan Xue Ye Xue Za Zhi 2021 Apr;29(2):648-652

Department of Hematology, The Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Henan Cancer Hospital, Zhengzhou 450008, Henan Province,

B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) is a common malignant tumor in hematopoietic system. Although the remission rate of the patients with adult B-ALL is similar to those with childhood B-ALL, the rate of long-term disease-free survival (DFS) rate is significantly lower, once recurrence, the remission rate of routine chemotherapy is low and the prognosis is so poor. Based on the expression of tumor cell surface antigens(such as CD19, CD20 and CD22), the specific monoclonal antibodies, bispecific antibodies and chimeric antigen receptor T cells (CAR-T), and other targeted immunotherapy can greatly improve the efficacy of B-ALL patients, especially for patients with relapse and refractory.
